One of the outpatient rehab alternatives for people in Holt who are struggling with opioid abuse and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed centers and doctors are certified to administer specific medications to opioid dependent individuals, many that are opioid-based also and are addiction. In low enough amounts however, the client doesn't experience being high but also does not have acute cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this reason, but there are other options currently to choose from.
Methadone is an opioid and is meant to be taken at an out-patient clinic certified to administer the med, which is taken on a daily basis as a pill or liquid. The cost of the med is approximately under $200 per month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid-based med, and is a pill often taken one day on, one day off. But different from Methadone that is only be given in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The monthly cost of buprenorphine is about $300.00 monthly for the generic of the drug. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains naloxone, that is a med which reverses the effects of opioids. Someone consuming this formulation, also known as Suboxone, would find it more difficult to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken on a daily basis, and is priced around $450 /month. Naltrexone is an additional medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs mentioned here it is an opiate blocker and is not an opioid. There is an option to take this drug as a monthly shot, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents a person from getting high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 per month.
